Choosing a development platform has become as much a daunting a task as the actual development itself and with BlackBerry now offering a selection, it has made the process an even more complicated one. There are so many benefits and advantages that come with having options; the one disadvantage is that, you have options. Confusing isn’t it? A gift and a curse.
My intent is not to make the decision for you; in all honesty that silver bullet doesn’t really exist, but more to provide enough insight to make your decision a much easier one. I’ll focus specifically on the Enterprise side, behind the firewall and inside the work perimeter. Now that we’re here, what are your BlackBerry 10 development platform options? WebWorks, Cascades and Core Native. Take a look at each one and get familiar with the overview, and then let’s walk through the use cases and benefits of each.
